Another fun weekend

October’s been a phenomenal month for girl time! I enjoyed the weekend in Portland, and then last weekend spending time here in San Antonio, and then yesterday, more fun times with some wonderful, wonderful women.  It is an amazing thing, what my little hobby has brought to me.  The friendships I have because of it, the good times I have to remember . . .  All because of a little block of wood with some rubber stuck on it, and a community built on that block.


Despite the late start (which involved me sitting in the turn lane waiting for my knight in shining armor (Joe Streiff!) to come help me, and then a tow to the nearest Nissan dealership), we had a blast up I-35 in Salado, Texas. Anna, Sharon, Jeanne, Sherry, Bev and I decided to get together since Sherry was in town. We had so much fun! Anna is just a doll, Jeanne & Sherry were a hoot to carpool with, and it was soooo good to spend time with Bev & Sharon here in Texas! We shopped at Stamp Salado and brought home some pretty things, had a yummy lunch, and then did some shopping at a couple of the other stores in walking distance. I had SUCH a terrific time on Saturday with y’all! The only problem was that the day was too short. We must do it again. Who wants to come to Texas? Sherry will tell you that we’ll show you a good time!

I needed a little break from working on invites for a fundraiser dinner my uncle’s campaign people are putting together (200. With star brads holding the layers together, and then cardstock to hide the brads. Ugh.), and I’d just gotten some new stuff in the mail, so I played with what was closest!elzy1.jpg

She is SO cute, isn’t she? I love these Elzybells stamps, and was so tickled to have the ones I’d ordered when I came home from shopping on Saturday.  I was super happy about that speedy shipping!

I also needed a quick baby card for one of Mike’s coworkers, and made this one.


The A Muse 4 bar notecards made both of these cards a cinch to put together. Simple, easy, fast. Just my style right now!

Hopefully I’ll have some time to play with all of the new stuff that’s showing up around here lately!  The stuff is calling me, but first, back to the invites!
